Thanksgiving/Fall Crafts & Activities

Thanksgiving is a time when we all count our blessings and show gratitude for the many good things in our lives. You can encourage kindness and gratitude in your kids this Thanksgiving with a kindness challenge.

A random acts of kindness challenge helps kids learn to express gratitude, combat bullying with kindness, and focus on positivity. We could all use more of that this Fall! It’s also a great time to create a grateful tree craft as you use my I am thankful for printable. Simply write the things you are thankful for on each leaf and glue it on the tree.

Here are more fall/Thanksgiving activities to keep your children busy, happy and learning at home!

Apple Theme

Early Fall is the perfect time to learn all about apples with your preschoolers. Check out some of my favorite apple activities including an apple stamp painting project, apple life cycle printables, and apple themed read aloud stories your preschoolers will love.


Pumpkins present all kinds of fun Fall activities for kids to explore and learn too! Check out some of my favorite preschool pumpkin activities for Fall. This themed unit is filled with printables, dramatic play center ideas, and hands-on learning fun. Your early learners will love exploring the inside of a pumpkin with my “label a pumpkin” activity.


Celebrate the first Thanksgiving in your preschool classroom and at home with some of the Fall preschool activities I’ve created. Kids can pluck turkeys while practicing letter recognition skills or play a Turkey Trot printable math game. Then, build fine motor skills and practice handwriting while creating adorable pilgrim girls and boys with a Thanksgiving Craftivity.
